Storyline

Eight-year-old Mac has outgrown his imaginary friend, says his mother, so he takes his buddy Bloo (a walking, talking security blanket) to Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Here all sorts of odd characters, given up by their creators, are welcome to stay until new kids come to adopt them. Mac strikes a deal with Madame Foster, the proprietor: as long as he comes to visit every day, Bloo will not be put up for adoption. Written by Alan Back

Best Cartoon Since Spongebob
18 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The one thing I love most about Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is that everyone can enjoy it. Kids are fascinated by the imaginary friends and the unique animation, the humor is tasteful and it's simply entertaining. Generally when a new cartoon comes out it's just a regurgitated form of something else, or simply a bland idea. Foster's is a very fresh concept. Mr. Herriman is an old bunny who runs a foster home for, you guessed it, imaginary friends. Some are adopted, but some are just too odd and end up making it their permanent residence. What drags you in is all the very different imaginary friends. They're likable in all their own strange ways. That's what I like most about it, but the animation and the two human characters, Frankie and Mac, who work at the home and get into plenty of trouble while doing so. Whatever age you are, I highly recommend this cartoon. It's not often something like this comes around. I hope it lasts a long time.
